    I was so please with how that paper went! I couldn't remember a third mutualistic relationship but I said what one could be without giving examples of specific animals, if that makes sense? That and I put dendrites on the picture of the neurone and a few people told me it should have be dendron, but not sure. I also had to guess on the infertility one and say that the testes got blocked by mucus but the 6 markers were great! I loved the homeostasis section but the only thing was the 6 marker about blood glucose. I just put about the insulin and glucagon and what they do. Do you think that was enough?
    I put dendrites as well to fingers crossed that's right! I also wrote that for the glucose 6 marker except I added that it is an example of negative feedback and homeostasis. Crossing my fingers for 6 marks!

    Dendrite comes from the greek word dendron so they basically mean the same thing - no need to worry!😂

    In the infertility question you have to say the vas deferens could not develop

    Grade Boundries ?
    It was fairly easy so quite high I would say. Probably 52/53 for an A* then like 46/47 for an A

    we had to calculate the percentage decrease in smoking (the diagram was confusing) and suggest why smoking has decreased in the UK.
    I think it was 10% or something. It had to do with taking away.

    It was a good paper. I was confused on the Hodgkin's or whatever and put recessive. I put 8% for that bio mass one, which was definitely wrong. But overall, I think I lost 7 marks maximum.

    what did everyone get for the percentage of energy lost? is it likely that you can get an a* if you've dropped 6 marks?

    I think I lost 8 marks, 2 from the mutalistic 6mark question, 3 maybe form the biomass percentage, 2 form cyistic fibrosis and one maybe somewhere

    I thought it was really easy - but the only question i was a bit like... erm was the one about cystic fibrosis and infertility. I just made an educated guess, but i don't think i got it right. I think i'll still get an A* or at least an A though

    Nah it was dendrites
    'cause it was a motor neurone
    And motor neurones don't have dendrons

    They don't
    Those are probably the previous year
    The grade boundaries change because they're a percentage
    So for example it might be like the top 10% of candidates get an A*
    And that one year the lowest still in the top 10% would have got 53/60

    I think they will allow 9-11%
